Abstract (en)

[origin: EP2243385A2] The method involves introducing fluid filling into capsules (43, 44). Quality of filters or filter rods (40) is monitored by number of capsules, position of capsules and condition of the capsules. The filters or filter rods are guided through a microwave measuring field of a microwave resonator (45) using a microwave measuring process. The position of the capsules in the filter rods or filters is controlled. Change in the microwave field at a preset frequency is measured, and the quality of capsules in the filters or filter rods is determined based on the change of the microwave fields. Independent claims are also included for the following: (1) a method for operating a filter rod machine in a tobacco processing industry (2) a filter rod machine in a tobacco processing industry, comprising a cutting device.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft ein Verfahren zum Betrieb einer Filterstrangmaschine (60) der Tabak verarbeitenden Industrie, wobei in den Filterstrang (40, 40') Kapseln (43, 44), die mit einer Flüssigkeit gefüllt sind, durch eine Einlegevorrichtung (42, 42') eingebracht werden und wobei mittels einer Schneidvorrichtung (46, 46') aus dem Filterstrang (40, 40') Filter (41) abgelängt werden, wobei die Phase zwischen Einlegevorrichtung (42, 42') und Schneidvorrichtung (46, 46') oder wobei die Geschwindigkeit eines Formatbandes (52, 52') relativ zur Phase der Schneidvorrichtung (46, 46') geregelt wird. Ferner ist ein Verfahren zur Regelung der Phase zwischen einer Einlegevorrichtung und einer Schneidvorrichtung vorgesehen.
